Joan Armatrading
Lincoln TheatreBritish blues baby Joan Armatrading entered the rock scene in the early ’70s with an album that showcased low-slung vocals, jaunty guitar work and precise personal lyrics about romantic battles. Some 30 years later, the powerhouse is still at it, now backed with a four-piece. This date comes just after a stint on Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors tour in the Pacific Northwest and after a Grammy nomination for her 2007 album, Into the Blues. With George Stanford at 8 p.m. for $30-$45. Kathy Justice
